texting and icy pavement don't mix!

Here is this month's embarrassing moments illo I did for M Magazine. A girl was texting her best friend about a conversation she just had with her crush when she slipped on a patch of black ice. It turned out that her crush was right behind her and saw the whole thing, when he helped her up he picked up her phone and saw what she had typed!

friend of mine

This is the painting I did to replace my sold piece in the Small Treasures gallery show. It's called "Friend of Mine" and it was sold before it even made it to the wall! Thanks to Nancy (shown) for giving it a good home!

My painted plate will be up for auction this Saturday at the Paso Robles Library Foundation's BookPlates! event (it's the red one right above the logo on this flyer). If you donate a new or gently used coat or sweater to Coats for Kids at the event, you'll get a coupon for a free treat from Coldstone Creamery.

Here's a look at the painting I did for the "Small Treasures" show that opened this past Wednesday night in Paso Robles. It's called "Depths" and was sold on Thursday! This was a fun departure from my usual broken color painting style.
